Rocket Very nice decor in this modern building containing a two bar pub divided up into a number of separate areas. I believe it replaced a much older pub of the same name demolished when the M62 was built.
The Sunday carvery was very good when I tried it in 2008.

Royal Navy Association "RNA" A very nice popular social club with an impressive glass-roofed conservatory on one side of the main room. Busy and very lively on a Friday night with an 02.00 licence. Highly recommended for a fun night out.

A rather nicely faked up market 1990s construction, now part of the Sizzling chain. There is an interesting "time capsule" built into one of the walls, to be opened in 2045 - I wonder if I'll be there to update this report!
